All I Want for Christmas..

is to finish this quilt… and I did it!

I made hundreds of triangles from my orange scrap basket while a snow bird last winter. (I have no idea where the yellow ones are now!!)

triangles

Well, I used a fair number of them up making this quilt. I made it as part of the Quilts at the Creek 2017 challenge: a red and white quilt to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. Funny how you barely notice the orange!

I love the way I worked the corners, but I can tell you there were many times I had to remove blocks to get it right. I used the Marti Michell templates C19 & C 20 for the tricky(54-40 or fight blocks), and especially love how the  red “circles” really pop. Of course I still need to think about what I want on the back, and what kind of quilting it needs, but right now I just want to stare at it- SO pleased with it!

If you want to see it live and in person (and finished!) you will have to visit Quilts at the Creek 2017.
